Going by the tweets from both parties in recent weeks, it would seem that Chris Evans and Jenny Slate are on their way back into each other’s arms, having split in February after a brief nine-month relationship.
A series of flirtatious tweets starting last month are strong pointers, if not hard evidence, to the revival of relationship between 36-year-old Captain America and comedian actress Jenny Slate, 35.
All remaining doubts in the minds of fans and followers of a possible resumption of dialogue, if you will, between the estranged couple, should have been put to rest with Slate’s Friday tweet. Here’s what it says:
“My boyfriend does many dreamy&generous things but number 1 in my mind right now is how he celebrates my new turtlenecks/let’s me show him my online shopping spoils&cheers me on,” wrote the comedian. Well, in the light of earlier tweets by the two, it won’t take a rocket scientist to work out who that lucky boyfriend is.

Now let’s take a look at what got the rumor mills in such a tizzy these past few weeks.
Here’s an exchange of tweets between the two from last month that started it all.
The tweets below may seem absolutely irrelevant at first glance, but a closer look will show that Slate had been lovingly generous with her LIKES to everything Captain America has recently dropped.
However, the same can’t be said about her hunky man who doesn’t have his twitter LIKES visible to the public.
And if that was not enough, this one below should absolutely nail it.
On Tuesday, Evans shared a cute video of his dog Dodger playing with a stuffed lion with a Lion King song playing in the background.
However, what captures your interest in this seemingly inconsequential video is a woman’s laughter in the background; if you have heard Slate before, you’d be pretty much convinced it couldn’t be anybody else but her, giggling behind the scene.
This is Dodger’s stuffed lion. He loves it. He brings it everywhere. If you press it’s paw, it sings. Today, Dodger decided to join in. pic.twitter.com/CuH53VNVtF

A month, or so, after they broke up in February this year, the “Gifted” star was quite candid about Evans and their split in a March issue of New York magazine.
“Chris is truly one of the kindest people I’ve ever met, to the point where sometimes I would look at him and it would kind of break my heart,” she said. “He’s really vulnerable, and he’s really straightforward. He’s like primary colors. He has beautiful, big, strong emotions, and he’s really sure of them. It’s just wonderful to be around. His heart is probably golden-colored if you could paint it,” she further explained.
“When Chris and I started dating, my husband and I had only been separated for a couple of months,” she explained. “Even though we had an amicable divorce, I think that’s still something that you need to mourn. When you get separated from somebody that you actually care about, it is the destruction of a belief system. That is really, really sad. I just didn’t have the tools. And I didn’t think very hard about that, to be honest,” the beloved comedian said.
Despite a parting agreement between them that they would not speak to each other again, she was hopeful all that would change.
“I’d love to be his friend one day,” she had confessed. “But we threw down pretty hard. No regrets, though. Ever.
Well, it seems things are working out better than she had hoped for.
Having witnessed the death of several celebrity relationships this year, including Chris Pratt and Anna Faris, Josh Duhamel and Fergie, and, most recently, Selena Gomez and The Weeknd (there’s a chance of a revival here as well), we sincerely hope that their relationship not only stays this way but reaches even more milestones.
